Association

Plans for creating a public library in Haverford Township began in 1933. The citizens involved in the planning process were advised to incorporate the library as an Association which would allow for proper public input and oversight.  Association members meet annually, on the third Wednesday in May, to elect three (3) of the library’s seven (7) Board of Trustee members (when terms are up for election). Becoming a member of the Association is one way to make your voice heard in the library. The annual meeting is also the time for Association members to hear about the health and welfare of the library and to exchange ideas with the Board and each other.

In order to join the Association you must:

  • Have a library card
  • Live in Haverford Township
  • Be 18 years old or older

To be eligible to vote at an Annual Meeting, membership must be submitted by the last day in February prior to the May meeting.  You may download a PDF of the membership form. Once you are a member, you do not have to renew from year to year (there are no dues to become a member). You are only asked to keep your contact information current.
